    Information can be obtained by entering details in the various fields on the Motion Calendar Search Page. The more details entered, the more accurate the search results. Since the Motion Calendar database contains proceeding information for a six-week period (two weeks prior to the current date and four weeks following the current date), certain restrictions have been placed on the search criteria permitted. These restrictions will narrow the search, resulting in a quicker response time and more precise data.

    Why can't I find a case when I do an inquiry?
    Is the case a civil case?
    This site contains only NJ Superior Court cases filed in the Law Division - Civil and Special Civil Parts and Chancery Division - General Equity. Probate motions do not appear.
    Has a motion been filed?
    The data contains only civil cases in which a motion has been filed and has been placed on the motion calendar. Only cases scheduled within a specified six-week period are displayed. The specific motion period covered is displayed near the top of the Motion Calendar Search Page.
    Was specific motion information, i.e. Venue, Court, Docket Number, entered?
    Because of abbreviations and other differences in data entry, the information entered in the motion database may not match the data entered in the Motion Calendar Search Page. It is strongly recommended that the data entered on the Search Page be as specific as possible.
    Is any portion of the case a sensitive manner and therefore impounded?
    All or part of a case may be impounded because there is a legal requirement for confidentiality. Any part of the case that is impounded is excluded from this database. To confirm the scheduled status of a motion for an impounded case, please contact the Civil Division in the county in which the motion was filed.

    When are motions heard by the court?

    Motion days are set by the New Jersey Supreme Court. They are scheduled in every county to be held primarily on every other Friday. The Judiciary has published a schedule of motion days for NJ Superior Court Civil cases: Law Division - Civil and Special Civil Parts and Chancery Division - General Equity.

    Have opposition papers to this motion been filed?

    Please contact the law clerk in the appropriate judge's chambers.

    Who should be contacted if there is a data-related problem?

    Please contact the Civil Division staff in the county in which the motion was filed.
        Examples of data-related problems:

    How do I identify the correct technical support area?

    If one of the Motion Calendar pages does not load and you cannot access other web sites, contact your Internet Service Provider (ISP).
    If an error message (for example, ADODB.Field error '800a0bcd') is not related to data entry, the support area is the ACMS Applications support group (ACMS).
    If you are unable to link to the Motion Calendar page from one of the other New Jersey Judiciary's web pages, the support area is the Webmaster support group (WEB).
    If one of the Motion Calendar pages does not load or respond in a timely manner, the support area is the Network support group (NETWORK). Please note that there are many possible causes for slow response time or the inability to load a page over the Internet. Please verify that you are not having problems accessing other web sites.
